Instant Pot Goulash

Goulash is instant comfort food for me! I remember my mom making this. I wanted a quicker way to make it, so I made Instant Pot Goulash! Tastes just like I remember! 

Instant Pot Goulash, Easy Meals Chasing Saturdays. Food

Harvest time is here, and farmers are getting busier in the fields. Goulash is a great meal to make, even if you get back in the house late. If you prefer spaghetti, try my Pressure Cooker Spaghetti recipe. 

When the corn plant starts dying off, it means the corn is getting ready to be harvested. If you look closer, you can see other changes. 

This ear of corn is completely filled out, and it is hanging down on the stalk, instead of standing up. That means is is very close to harvest, the silks are brown and the corn is starting to dent. The plant is no longer supplying the sugars to the corn, and the moisture is releasing out of the corn. The corn is still protected by the husks, which are starting to dry out. 

First step is to brown the meat.  You can brown the meat on the stove, but I used the brown function on the Instant Pot.  I added a chopped onion and a clove of garlic.  I used one ground pork and one ground beef.  Use seasonings of your choice. 

After the meat is brown, add one pound, or 16 ounces of uncooked pasta.  

We had an overabundance of tomatoes this year in our garden, so I am using our canned tomatoes.  One can of tomato juice and one can of stewed tomatoes.  Use spaghetti sauce of your choice.  Also, add one can of tomato paste and one cup of water. 

Set the Instant Pot to 15 minutes. When is is completed, carefully put a towel over the lid, and set the quick release.  Carefully remove lid, and add in cheese and serve the goulash. 

If you love pasta, you also need to try Pressure Cooker Spaghetti.
